AN ACQIRED TASTE FOR INDIAN ST LEGER

Sunday, September 29, 2013


PUNE RACES.


1. ST BARTS showed improvement in last run and has been tracked. VICTORIOUS CAUSE goes with a rookie after placing last time, has won at this distance before. VENEZIANO is a front runner who failed as a favorite. ANCIENT ODYESSEY has been deliberately brought down to low level, showed fitness in gates, should run well under the striking rider.

ANCIENT ODYESSEY-VENEZIANO-VICTORIOUS CAUSE.

2. The race should be contested by the first two, HAIL THE KING fought valiantly last time and just failed. INDICATION has indicated will to win in good finishing effort both times. ONLY ONE and SYDNEY showed improvement in last runs respectively to go closer this time.

INDICATION-HAIL THE KING.

3. The two horses from Lagad’s lot have been worked well and ADMIRAL GRAY looks to be forward. Of the Narredu’s lot. OPEN OFFER is looking good in works. The breeder’s would be very keenly looking forward to ROMEO’s performance from their freshman sire KINGDA KA, this one is in speedy condition and should be fancied to win.

ROMEO-OPEN OFFER.

4. ARGYLE PINK may have been prepared discretely by the trainer but she is conceding weight and has yet to do anything. MOUNTAIN PRINCE may be running for money after tracks, which is very unusual for this trainer but rider is very ordinary and the horse is still a maiden at this age. MAMBO MAGIC has a weak rider. PISTOL PACKING MAMA is an uncertain type, can surprise. GOLDEN SPURS is the oldie who looks most likely to get on board here, can upset. OVER TIME MAGIC has a chance to do well after easy runs.

GOLDEN SPURS- MOUNTAIN PRINCE -ARGYLE PINK.

5. CLINTON is a good type who won well and can handle penalty. BLUE ACE has run with good types, has been given runs this season, gets a top jockey. COMMANDER has a chance to be in firing line, the rider is below others in close situations. CENT PER CENT is tracking at top gear and should trouble all.

BLUE ACE-CENT PER CENT.

6. SAINTS N SINNERS can be considered for upset, is capable of running a front race if getaway is clean. PITBULL has been in fine sprinting form, has tough penalty now. DREAMLINER also has a chance at this distance. EDWINA won well and shorter distance will be to her liking.

EDWINA-PITBULL-DREAMLINER.

7. The classic race again pitches the two top horses TINTINABULATION and AN ACQUIRED TASTE to fight out. The former ran much below par in NATIVE KNIGHT’s upset win where as the later has reeled off two confident wins at this centre. WIND STREAM who ran well in Bangalore St Leger has been well tracked to upset.

AN ACQUIRED TASTE-TINTINNABUALTION.

8. GRAN AMIGO is the best performed but the trainer has put a very ordinary rider. The first time runner who is a top bred and full brother to black type PORT RUSH has been prepared for the day and may get home. I am not convinced with the preparation of the connected horses BADSHAH, AQUA ARIA and SONG SAA who all have looked immature and are yet to give a winners indication.

VICTORIA FALLS-GRAN AMIGO-BADSHAH.

9. JOSEPHINE ran in a tougher group last time, has worked well but top weight is a stopper. TITLIEST has been finishing on well this season and can do well. IN THE LIMELIGHT hung out and still ran a decent 2nd, the rider is average. THEOLOGY has a rookie for a try over pet trip. ENCORE is the better one from the same yard who has tracked fine and is due for a win. SAMAY BALWAN has won twice, looks to be in good form and may surprise again at low weights.

TRILLION WIN has not won for 3 years, remains unreliable. BUZZWORD is down in scales and gets a proper rider. SAYONEE may run a forward race

.
BUZZWORD-MYSTIC LAVENDERS-TRILLION WIN.


2. HATCHET HARRY, STAR OF DESIRE and SHAHRAAN had all failed in last runs as favourites. The first one appeared to have traffic problems and hence needs another chance. ENDURING SPEED and GAMBIT have been pulled and both have a chance to upset, the first named is down a lot in scales and has a rider to force. BRIGADE’S PARADISE is gleaming in tracks and should be in reckoning. A tough race.


ENDURING SPEED-HATCHET HARRY-BRIGADE’S PARADISE.


3. BOUNTY HUNTER was lucky to hold on last time. CARAWAY was a fast finisher, has not run since main centre and may not have form. SPARK OF HARMONY has a handicap chance. NOVEL APPROACH was blatantly pulled in last run, can win now. BEAUTIFUL LIFE has low weights.


NOVEL APPROACH-SPARK OF HARMONY-BEAUTIFUL LIFE.


4. AUMENTO runs after long, had left a good impression in a stylish win last time. CARISMA appears to be a reasonable type of local filly. ADRIPHOS won warding off and has worked well. ZAGATO was cleverly handled to strike at good odds, looks tough for repeat.


AUMENTO- ADRIPHOS-ZAGATO.


5. MOUNTAIN TRAIN will look to repeat in the suspect field. The weak rookie has been cleverly placed for the winner of 2 races, HONOURABLE EMPRESS who has speed to go through with out assistance. SPINNING CHAKRAM was not allowed to run on merit as he was not bet upon, has tracked well.GLORIOUS MOMENTS has proved to be a dud so far.


SMART MISTRAL-HONOURABLE EMPRESS-MOUNTAIN TRAIN.

MYSORE RACES.

1. FIORITTA is a 4 year old from the precocious sire, the filly has obviously been plagued with problems for not having raced so far, looks good in preparation but I would advise to ignore her in first run . ALWAYS LOVE has been worked and given a run. CONCENTRATION was tracking very well before last run, should be in the fray here. EMANCIPATION may get interested , can not predict intentions. YOU,RE A STAR is from dubious connections, had once taken down money as a backed well favorite.


CONCENTRATION-ALWAYS LOVE-FIORITTA.

2. MOTHER EWA had been pulled in first run, has been tracking nicely and should be in the hunt. SPEAR TOOTH has run very well against Bangalore horses and tracking as a good thing, should open at short odds, may take a dive today and await better odds later, that is the trend with trainer owned horses in this centre. JUMP IN THE RED has the rider as well as handicap. BRAZILIAN has the rookie repeating for place try.

MOTHER EWA-SPEARTOOTH-JUMP IN THE RED.

3. GLYCY’S BAY looks improved from works,should do well over this trip. ACE BADRAAN is a well bred who has been sharpened up for the race, handicap is good. KOLAVARI DI goes over extended trip. OUR COMMANDER will show improvement here. MANNAT has scales in favor, has tracked impressively.

TRANCE FOR S A POONAWALLA MULTI MILLION

Sunday, September 22, 2013


PUNE RACES.


Ever since I started blogging and even before that I have often brought up the menace of "doosra's" in Indian racing. This trend got started with father and sons pitching runners in same race and one of them getting public support taking a dive to facilitate win for the better odds one. What happened yesterday was nothing new and keeps on repeating in almost all racing centres. Nothing much will come out of inquiries and soon we will see repeat of what happened on the premises of Pune race club at some place or the other. ANTIA may have come under the public ire yesterday but why blame him alone when the system is flawed and the authorities are hand in glove with the perpetrators. A simple remedy is there to tighten up on such finesses, it is prevalent in all advanced countries, our authorities are well aware but sleep over it. The system is about clubbing horses from same connections for pay outs so that even if one wins at the cost of other nobody makes a killing at good odds. The system will also work as a deterrent to trainers keeping horses with non performing trainers and getting involved in malpractices.


1. ACE JET has tracked very nicely and is reasonably bred to be favoured to win as other runners look under worked. CAESAR’S WIFE has been tracking OK, has a try rider. ICE RINK should like the trip. AUGUSTYNA should trouble the favourite , her run with top weight in STAR BUILDER’S race was fine.


ACE JET-SCALANYA-CAESAR’S WIFE.


2. LIGHTENING THUNDER ran a notable 2nd , distance and top weight are deterrents for win effort. ROMANTIC BEAUTY who lost badly as a hot favourite earlier will like this distance, has handicap chance. NEON LIGHT is being scrubbed in works, distance will trouble. SKY LANTERN has been given easy runs, trip suits. CASINO JACK has been working well and low weights help.


ROMANTIC BEAUTY-CASINO JACK-LIGHTENING THUNDER.


3. TURF LIGHTENING had run a good 2nd to WEIZHOU earlier, has been given easy runs, looks good on handicap. MONZA is a good type who now runs at lower weights. SHARARAT may try to steal away at low weights.


TURF LIGHTENING-SHARARAT.


4. ZAMBEZI has been finishing on in some of the races, distance may be an issue. SAVAGE GARDEN has been leading in on a number of occasions, has a hard rider to coax him all the way. KAIZER may not last the trip, rider has to fight out.


SAVAGE GARDEN-ZAMBEZI.


5. EMPEROR OF FRANCE is showing lots of sped in works. AINRA won well but has penalty to beat. ACE ANGEL FIRE went wide at turn when backed by public, better odds may see better handling by the trainer’s nephew who is a very ordinary rider, has low weights. CAPITANO may upset, has not won for long.


EMPEROR OF FRANCE-CAPITANO-ACE ANGEL FIRE.


6. RAJSAMMAN had run well enough both times in Mumbai to merit serious thought as he is tracking well.THE MAGICIAN is by a mare who has produced a number of duds, may run well. MAUNA KEA is a surprise package as the trainer doesn’t freely work his wards. SANTA MARIA has taken time to come to hand in the top stables. STAR OF PEACE is tracking well.


RAJSAMMAN-SANTA MARIA-MAUNA KEA.

7. The runners can be compared by taking MARIINNSKY as the common factor. FALCON is a strong candidate who has worked well but lacks a run and carries top weight. INDIAN TOUCH has good form. DYNAMO is from a very good international sire and looks much improved. TRANCE has low weights and is best performance wise.


TRANCE—FALCON.


8. MARENGO who is working well runs in a group of non performers and with dud jockeys on top, hence a good chance to strike even at top weight. VALOROZSKY has run forward races, gets a low level rider. STAR GAZING has a chance to upset. Of the younger lot nothing much can be deduced PADMAKOSA may show some fight.


MARENGO-STAR GAZING-VALOROZSKY.


9. CREAM OF THE CROP is a sparingly raced one who has been given an easy run. CHAMPAKALI is a moderate bred who is tracking well. EROTIC FLAME has been in money in all 3 runs, stable is taking it easy this season. CALYPSO QUEEN was finishing like a train on the opening day and this aged one has been subjected to full preparation. WINDSOR QUEEN has been also prepared very nicely with a couple of mocks, will fight out.

1. HOLY BULL and PHELPS had raced close in race 63. The former has been extensively tracked thereafter where as the later will like the step up in distance.DEMONIC the full brother to STAR MARQUESS may show some fight.

PHELPS-HOLY BULL.

2. RUNNING SUN is maintaining form. NEATH ran a forward race last time. HALLE goes at ideal scales, should run closer this time.

NEATH-HALLE.

3. SCARAMOUCHE ran a good race last time but has never won over a mile. TELL ME MORE is another one who likes 1400m only, has been given a mock, is due for a win though. WINNING DESTINY had run a forward race last time and distance suits. WALK OF LIFE has form and looks to do well again.

TELL ME MORE-WALK OF LIFE.

4. CELTIC KING concedes weight over a long trip. MARS should be in reckoning at this range and level, has stout bloodlines. FORTUNE FAVORS had impressed a lot in last win, should improve. GHAZAL KING retains form after a fine win. RAZEENA may find it tough to win against youngsters, has low weights.

MARS-GHAZAL KING.

5. TO THE MOON and MIDNIGHT WIND appear to be the two main contenders. The former has come near to winning a few times and has a slight advantage. The later gets a good rider in a friendly field. Difficult to comment on others, ASK Antia as he has many runners.

TO THE MOON-MIDNIGHT WIND-WINCHESTER.

6. .MONET is tracking well but is badly placed on handicap and concedes loads of weight. OKAVANGO is awefully out of form. HURRICANE WIND was a winner all the way except at the post last time.

HURRICANE WIND-OKAVANGO.

7. PANTHERA is more of a sharp sprinter, has been beaten convincingly by YELLOW ZONE before. The later is in peach of a condition and can beat this lot all the way. DEEP DIVER had veered out a bit under pressure last time, has a semblance of a chance to do well . WAR HORSE may run a good race. STILETTO from a weak sire has been impressive in runs.

YELLOW ZONE-DEEP DIVER.

8. Appears to be a straight contest between SENORA BELLA and PETITE FLEUR. The former was not allowed to show out as the stable doosra was firing last time, however the filly is conceding weight. PETITE FLEUR was a fighting 3rd and has top breeding, may be for a change this one from a very weak trainer may score as she is shining in morning works.HOME ADVANTAGE and RELIC HUNTER may try to hit the board.

PETITE FLEUR-SENORA BELLA.

9. ACE OF HEART has shown improvement in tracks, has a weak handicap. MIRACLE OF MERCY woke up when the favorite was well clear last time, this one can deliver soon at good odds only. ALWAYS SMILE is down from class 3 and will run for money on backing. DOUBLE DIAMOND has done front running, gets a rider to go all the way. WIND OF CHANGE has a weak rookie, may be fancied.

BLACK BIRD is tracking well, from a weak sire this one had disappeared in last run with this very rider.BORN ELECTRIC is personally owned by the trainer, can perform if odds are generous.MANTA RAY had finished from back of the field in Bangalore , has been given a run here, can score at this handicap.

MANTA RAY-LOVE IS LIFE- BORN ELECTRIC.


4. FORTHCOMING is down in scales but needs a run at top weight. SUNGLOW has not raced for a long time, lacks preparation as well. JOLIE won easily, should improve, the trainer is shy in tracking his wards.RECHARGED has been given many an innocuous runs, watch ? CINCH won as a good thing, should repeat.

CINCH-JOLIE-SUN GLOW.

5. ABSOLUTE MAJORITY is the failed favorite, looks tough for win at this level. FLYING TRICOLOUR had impressed in his win and should run well again. IMPRESSIVE BOLT beat a weaker field, has tough penalty. WIND OF SOUL is on the up and retains good form. LADS ABILITY is due for a win, has tracked fast and should go all the way at low weights.

SPARK OF DIABLO can run a good race if he takes a good jump. MAGNETIC POWER has a rider switch after a reasonable run last time, has not won for long. MAGNANIMOUS placed for first time and should be fancied at low weights.

MAGNETIC POWER- NATION’S GLORY-LONDON EYE.

2. BELLE ETOILE from a decent sire has looked fit in tracks, has a weak field to beat but the trainer is master of the art of not winning on public favored runners with top jockeys on back .THE GENTLE DON had won his maiden a few weeks back and on that logic should not repeat so soon, field is for the taking. GOLDEN TIME may run for money. IMMACULATE had led in the straght in THE GENTLE DON’S win, has a chance win now.

NICKEL CHROME- CHASE THE SUN-TALISKER.



5. STRIKING ran shabbily when favorite last time, can not be seen winning here. KETURAH had shaped up like a winner and the well bred is a serious contender now. TIJUCA FOREST has surprisingly performed much better for his sire and needs to be considered over a mile even in this field. KEUKENHOF won with a versatile turn of foot and should be facied to win again. BEAUTY IS TRUTH ran a good 2nd in FCS at Bangalore but flopped as a favorite next time, trainer is not a sound professional and I do not feel he can prepare classic horses.

1. MISTER GREY was backed at Bangalore but flopped , has been pulled last time and goes with a rider who may deliver. FIRE STORM is due for a win and distance and handicap are ideal. LANKAN PEARL had placed for first time and should improve on that run. ALALA has done nothing so far, loöks ordinary,there is nothing much in the pedigree also. LIGHTENING EXPRESS was a forward runner who has won at this level a long time back, can be in the hunt.

FIRE STORM-LIGHTENING EXPRESS-ALALA.

2. ACEMPRESSJESSIE has shown out in works and first run was decent enough to merit serious consideration here. RED BUD has worked fine and should do well over this trip. ANOTHER VOICE os down a lot and has a chance to win if backed by the stables. SAMOVAR at low weights is a dud, let us see how much the good rider can goad this one to perform.

ACEMPRESSJESSIE- ANOTHER VOICE-RED BUD.

3. YUU’RE ROCKING was given a questionable run, he can win on backing. TORNADO FORCE has come down to a level where he can easily go all the way. MARACANA ran a forward race and showed improvement in last race. JEYAM has been waited with, can run well. MAGIC WAVE is a speedy one with a below par rookie.

4. GAME DANCER should run a forward race as handicap is in favor.STYLE OF SIGNATURE was a late 2nd, should be trying again. GOLDEN PRINCESS arn below par with a top rider in last run, may have been a deliberate ploy often employed by the connections. Narredu will have to work hard to win on MOUNTAIN SPLENDOUR who has come down in scales. KENTUCKY ROSE won inspite of a weak ride , has penalty which looks very stiff. JERSEY PRIDE has won at this level before.

GOLDEN PRINCESS-GAME DANCER- MOUNTAIN SPLENDOUR.

ARRABIAN GOLD- MI AMOR- NERON.

6. IMMENSE ran a mighty race despite a negative handicap, may tackle the extra yards in current form. SUPER STORM is still to regain last year’s form, can do well as he looks improved after a disappointing run. BOLD POLICE is a good miler and has an outside chance. PANAMERA won as weights were favorable at Pune, should be the one all have to watch out for in present form. CIRQUE DU SOLIEL is in fit condition and has age on side.

PLAYER has not been tried by the trainer so far, has looked improved in works.

WALK OF LIFE-MACHO UNO-MOUNTAIN WARRIOR.

2. SAINTS N SINNERS has not won for long and is at an ideal handicap to run away with the top rider. VISIONIST and EMERALD VALLEY look to match up, later has a rider switch to stronger whip man.

SAINTS N SINNERS-EMERALD VALLEY.

AUTUMN RUSH-TROPICAL ZONE-SPEED UP.

GLORIOUS REWARD was pulled in last run, should win on backing as fitness is evident. PARIS has been nicely prepared, has good bloodlines but I do not fancy her in first outing as she has taken time to get racing fit. PRETTY HOT struggled as a favorite, may run well.

GLORIOUS REWARD-GALLANT LAD-PARIS.

FRUIT KING was not in the hunt last time, ahs won at top weight in this class before. SUGAR FAIRY is the youngster who has never been in money, last 4th can be improved upon.SAYONEE has been nicely worked, remains a maiden so far.



FRUIT KING-SUGAR FAIRY-SAYONEE.



2. ANGEL QUEEN has come down with runs and may score on serious backing by the punting type trainer. TIC TAC TOE was backed well under this average rider but failed to deliver, may be fancied but looks supect.JAVANICA has slid down rapidly in scales and is the one who can strike any time.DOMINICIA may be fancied but the combination of a weak rider with a non performing stable is risky.



ANGEL QUEEN-TIC TAC TOE-DOMINICIA.



3. MARK should logically win after the good effort last time, can,t find much oppostion here.GLORIUS MOMENTS has a good sire but runs are backwards, tracks may be an indictor but not much convincing. Last run of the well bred CHAPANDAZ was too bad, the trainer is an enigma and end result is non performance. The 5 year old SOMERSET ROSE has a chance to run well.



MARK-GLORIOUS MOMENTS-CHAPANDAZ.



4. ZERMATT is working well and has liking for this distance, lack of run may be a hinderance. FANTASTIC STRIKE will be in thec fray based on last run. SUPREME appears to be one paced and unreliable. PERSIAN may be waited with for a local field. DEEP BLUE SEA has a favorable handicap and a rider switch. SEE YOU LATER is being waited with. Ignore last questionable run of WELL KNOWN, looks good to strike now.





WELL KNOWN-DEEP BLUE SEA-FANTASTIC STRIKE.

I have never liked SAMARA SUN and he keeps getting support time and again, looks out of handicap alsö.SCENIC BLAST is a speedy type who is due for a win, had a good run in SMITHSONITE’S race at top weight. CLEVER TRICK keeps under performing. MR CARPE has been slightly poorly handled, should have won more than the 2 races, has a chnace here, rider is most average.WHISLE JACKET at low weights for the cunning trainer may oblige with the connected good rider.



WHISLTE JACKET-MR CARPE-SCENIC BLAST.



6. STRIKING ran shabbily when favorite last time, can not be seen winning here. KETURAH had shaped up like a winner and the well bred is a serious contender now. TIJUCA FOREST has surprisingly performed much better for his sire and needs to be considered over a mile even in this field. KUKENHOF won with a versatile turn of foot and should be facied to win again. BEUTY IS TRUTH ran a good 2nd in FCS at Bangalore but see what the trainer has done with her after that, walking miles to run a race is not the ideal way to keep a good horse fit.



KEUKENHOF-KETURAH-STRIKING.



7. SMOKIN ACES may try runaway tactics but has many things against a win here. FLYING TRICOLOUR may try to exploit form and beat the stiff penalty. THOUGHTS N ACTIONS who finished late has a handicap chance, ideal distance is bit more. MOUNTAIN HIGH has the allowance rider to score with, last run is an indicator.



MOUNTAIN HIGH-THOUGHTS N ACTIONS-FLYING TRICOLOUR.

SAINTS N SINNERS showed a good sprint in last run and the rookie may be able to threaten at low weights with a forward run.
